aPhotos from the T H E M A Y S balloon launch - February 26, 2014
On Saturday, February 18, we launched T H E M A Y S new record, Airspace, into the atmosphere! All the flash drives were sent skyward...Ok we only sent half due to the rising cost of helium, but somewhere out there on the firmament lay 6 flash drives in some state or other just waiting for one lucky and extremely curious human to find them. Hopefully they are still in the boxes, lovingly silk screened and hand made by the great Erik Otto , that give it all a bit of context.
Either way, it was a lot of ludicrous fun to do and here are some pictures from the event for the curious.
Not that we aren't committed to this novel release format but to broaden the audience scope we will be releasing the record digitally on March 18 accompanied by remixes from Borful Tang, Kemek, THEMAYS, Shortcircles and more!
